DEAR ALUMNI AND FRIENDS: 

This greeting comes to you upon my return from an extensive trip during 
the past month in the North and West. Since the opening of school I have 
had the privilege of visiting alumni in New York City, Brooklyn, Orange, 
Jersey City, Newark, Philadelphia, Pittsburg and St. Louis, in addition to 
appearances before the white Baptist Conference and the Negro Baptist Con- 
ference of Chicago and the white Baptist State Conventions of Minnesota, 
Kansas, Iowa and Michigan. 

I have been greatly pleased by the awakened interest in Shaw on the part 
of the various alumni groups whom I met and by the tangible evidences of 
the good will of many new friends. I am happy to note that in increasing 
numbers the alumni and friends are visiting the institution and are im- 
pressed by the developments which are taking place both in our building 
project and in our educational program. We are also very grateful for the 
contributions which many are sending in so faithfully. 

We are delighted to be able to report the complete renovation of Estey 
Hall. This building is now the most attractive on the campus and the young 
women seem to be very happy in their completely renovated home. 

You are invited to attend the annual Founder's Day program on Friday, 
November 18, at 10:30 a.m. This year our guest speaker will be another 
one of Shaw's distinguished graduates, Doctor Frank S. Hargrave, prominent 
physician and churchman of Orange, New Jersey. If you cannot be present 
I shall be pleased to receive from you a word of greeting and a contribution 
as evidence of your continued loyalty and good wishes. 

Very cordially yours, 

ROBERT P. DANIEL, 

President. 



Shaw University Bulletin 



The Honorable Frank S. Hargrave, 
Founder's Day Speaker 



Dr. Frank S. Hargrave, member 
of the General Assembly of New- 
Jersey, will be principal speaker at 
Shaw University Founder's Day exer- 
cises to be held on the University 
campus and in Greenleaf Memorial 
Auditorium beginning at ten-thirty 
on Friday morning, November 18, ac- 
cording to recent announcement of 
President Robert P. Daniel. 

The program celebrating the sev- 
enty-third anniversary of the found- 
ing of Shaw University will include 
brief memorial exercises at the grave 
of Dr. Henry Martin Tupper, the 
founder of the school; the Founder's 
Day address; the President's annual 
message; In Memorial; a luncheon; 
and other activities prepared for the 
entertainment of alumni and friends. 
A portion of this program will be 
broadcast over the facilities of radio 
station WPTF at eleven o'clock and 
indications are that in addition to the 
many alumni and friends in attend- 
ance, many others will tune in to 
share the benefits of the exercises. 

Dr. Hargrave, who will deliver the 
Founder's Day address, is a Shaw 
University alumnus, having received 



from the Leonard Medical School the 
M.D. degree in 1901. Since his gradu- 
ation he has become one of the most 
prominent of Shaw alumni. He was 
elected to the New Jersey Assembly 
in 19 29 and was reelected in 1930, 
1933, 1935, and 19 3 7, successively. 
Outstanding among his achievements 
as a member of the Assembly are the 
introduction of bills providing for a 
battalion of Negro men, and the rec- 
ommendation of legislation to pro- 
vide for a health officer in smaller 
communities of New Jersey. 

Dr. Hargrave is also chairman of a 
commission having at its disposal 
thirty thousand dollars to report on 
the culture, health, and living condi- 
tions of the Negro urban population; 
he is a former president of National 
Medical Association; a member of the 
Tuberculosis League in New Jersey 
and of North Jersey Medical Society. 

Dr. Hargrave is well-known for his 
humanitarian work and benevolent 
attitude toward worthwhile causes. 
According to The Daily Courier of 
Orange, New Jersey, he is "esteemed 
and revered by the public of all 
colors, races and creeds."

Shaw University Bulletin 



The Formal Opening 

Formal opening exercises held at Shaw University, Friday, September 16, 
in the University Chapel were featured by the address of C. C. Spaulding, 
president of the North Carolina Mutual Insurance Company 'and a member 
of the Shaw University board of trustees, who urged the 442 students regis- 
tered to develop a high sense of character, an appreciation for culture, and 
a training for life's work which will make it unnecessary for them to beg. 

Acknowledgement was made by President Robert P. Daniel of the return 
of Dr. Nelson H. Harris, who during leave last year earned at the University 
of Michigan the Ph.D. degree; Professor Benjamin Quarles, who completed 
on leave last year all examinations for the Ph.D. degree at the University 
of Wisconsin, and of Miss Marguerite Frierson, who earned during leave 
last year the M.Ed, degree at Boston University. 

Five new faculty members, including Mrs. Susie W. Yeargin, dean of 
women; Mrs. Minnie D. Turner, assistant dean of women; Mrs. L. Louise H. 
Graves, librarian; Mrs. Emma Wells, head of the department of home eco- 
nomics; and Miss Margaret Jackson, instructor in English, were also intro- 
duced to the student body. 

Dr. Spaulding insisted that in order to get what they come to college for, 
students must bring with them an ability to work, a sincerity of purpose, the 
ability to live and cooperate with men, as well as a desire to make through 
the help of a Christian education a contribution to their fellows. 

"We want to raise a crop of men so necessary to the world and so imbued 
with the willingness to assist mankind that they will be too proud to beg," 
the Negro business leader continued. 

In criticising the undesirable attitude some persons have toward relief, 
Dr. Spaulding said, "there are so many of our race on the relief rolls that 
our friends are beginning to wonder whether or not we really want to work." 

Prayer was offered by the Rev. J. L. Hairston, member of the Shaw board 
of trustees, and music was furnished by Professor Harry Gil-Smythe, assisted 
by Miss Jaunita Price and Charles Dunston. Dean John L. Tilley was master 
of ceremonies. 



Help a worthy student become a Shawite by contributing to the Scholarship 
Fund. There are many high school graduates who would make good in 
college if they had the opportunity which you may be able to give them. 



6 Shaw University Bulletin 

First Semester Registration, 1938-39 

Four hundred and forty-two students from twelve states are enrolled in 
Shaw University for the first semester of the current school year. This num- 
ber represents an increase of nearly two per cent of last year's enrollment 
when officials of the University believed that the highest expectancy in num- 
bers had been reached. 

The unusually large registration, however, allows opportunity for the ex- 
pansion of the program of selecting students which the University has prac- 
ticed to some extent during the past several years. 

Among those registered are included one hundred seventy-seven freshmen 
of which a large percentage are new students who have never attended col- 
lege before. Indications are that a further increase in the size of the fresh- 
man class will tax the facilities of the University to their full capacity. 

Forty-five of the students enrolled are special students who, although 
regularly employed as teachers, ministers and in other work, are pursuing 
special courses in order to advance their academic standing, to derive per- 
sonal benefits, or to secure enough credits to be able to earn a degree under 
minimum residence requirements. 

Fifty of the persons registered come from states other than North Carolina. 
Included among these states are District of Columbia, Pennsylvania, New 
Jersey, Arkansas, Connecticutt, Virginia, New York, South Carolina, Indiana, 
Florida, and Kentucky.

Shaw University Bulletin 



President Daniel Named in "Who's Who" 




ROBERT P. DANIEL 



Reprinted from The (Raleigh) News 
and Observer 

To youngish, bespectacled Robert 
Prentiss Daniel goes the honor of 
being the only Raleigh Negro listed 
by "Who's Who in America." 

Almost 3 6 now, Dr. Daniel's whole 
life for the past 14 years has been 
crowded into the field of education 
and the success there which brought 
him the presidency of Shaw Univer- 
sity in 193 6 also brought the "Who's 
Who" listing. 

Not since the day in 19 24 when he 
received his A.B. degree from Vir- 
ginia Union University in Richmond 
has he stepped from education. After 
his A.B. came work on his M.A. at 
Columbia, with the degree being 
awarded in 1928. 

During 1924 and 1925, he taught 
mathematics at Wayland Academy, 
Richmond, going to Virginia Union 
in 19 25 and 19 26 as assistant pro- 
fessor of education, becoming profes- 
sor of education in 1926. Two years 
later he widened his activity there 
to take over the duties of professor 
of education and psychology and di- 



rector of extension. He held those 
posts until coming to Shaw. 

During the years of his teaching in 
Virginia. Dr. Daniel continued his 
work at Columbia and received his 
Ph.D. degree there in 1932. 

The summers of 1935 and 1936 
also found him in Virginia, as visit- 
ing professor of education at Hamp- 
ton Institute. 

Dr. Daniel's work here has not 
been limited to the confines of Shaw. 
He is a member of the board of di- 
rectors of the Raleigh Community 
Chest, member of the executive com- 
mittee of the North Carolina Inter- 
racial Commission; district chairman 
of the Occoneechee Council of Boy 
Scouts; member of the American Psy- 
chology Association, of the National 
Education Association, of the Vir- 
ginia Society for Research, of Alpha 
Phi Alpha. 

He also published a book, "A Psy- 
chological Study of Delinquent and 
Non-delinquent Negro Boys." 

Dr. Daniel is a Baptist and a Ma- 
son. He was married in 1929 to Miss 
Blanche Ardell Taylor of Richmond.

Shaw Alumni — Homecoming* 

The Shaw University homecoming football game this year will be played 
against Bluefield Institute on Thanksgiving and not against Virginia State 
College as originally scheduled. Moving its traditional Turkey Day St. Au- 
gustine's College rivals up one week on the schedule, the Bears are to meet 
in the Bluefield team one of the strongest aggregations in the Conference. 

In order to brighten the homecoming festivities before the game the Uni- 
versity has planned a gala parade to include floats, automobiles, bands, 
marching students and what-have-you. 

Between the halves "Miss Shaw," attended by beautiful "ladies-in-waiting" 
and equally attractive team sponsors, will be crowned. After the game 
adequate entertainment will be provided during which graduates and former 
students may review their successes and experiences with other graduates. 

It is hoped that Shaw alumni with automobiles will bring their decorated 
cars for the parade. If they are not decorated the automobiles will be asked 
to participate in the parade anyway. Those without automobiles are urged 
to come and enliven what is hoped to become one of the greatest homecoming 
days in the history of the school.

Shaw Day in New York City 

President Robert P. Daniel of Shaw University was the principal speaker 
on an annual Shaw Day program held at the Abyssinian Baptist Church in 
New York City, Sunday, October 2, and at which the sum of three hundred 
dollars was raised to be given the Raleigh, North Carolina, school. 

The Shaw Day exercises at the church were followed by a meeting of the 
Shaw New York alumni at which the alumni contributed one hundred dollars 
to the University and pledged an additional five hundred dollars. Dr. L. B. 
Capehart, prominent Shaw alumnus and outstanding New York physician, 
was master of ceremonies. 

During the day Police Sergeant Emmanuel Klein and Dr. Adrian Freeman 
contributed one hundred dollars each to Shaw University. 

Among the prominent speakers on the Shaw Day program were James H. 
Hubert, secretary of the New York Urban League; the Rev. A. Clayton Powell, 
pastor of the Abyssinian Baptist Church; Judge James S. Watson of the 
municipal court, and other outstanding New Yorkers. 

Leslie Furlonge is president of the New York Shaw Club. 



Bequests of an Alumnus 



One hundred dollars has been received by Shaw University from the estate 
of the late Dr. A. E. Tennant, Richmond, Va., as provided for in the will of 
the deceased Virginia physician. In connection with the monetary gift Mrs. 
A. E. Tennant, the wife of Dr. Tennant, has presented the University 12 7 
volumes valued at more than 300 dollars from the library of the well-known 
Richmond doctor. 

The volumes include the works of Washington Irving, French Classical 
Romances, Novels of Victor Hugo, Works of Benjamin Disraeli, works of 
Edgar Allan Poe, works of Louise Muhlbach, works of Charles Dickens, Wit 
and Humor of America, and the University Encyclopedia of Twentieth Cen- 
tury Knowledge. 

Dr. Tennant was a graduate of the Shaw University Leonard Medical 
School and was one of the best known physicians in Virginia.

Distinguished Alumnus Returns 



After thirty-four years absence, Dr. 
H. G. Mackerrow, M.D., 1904, re- 
turned to Shaw University on October 
18 to be enthusiastically received by 
the entire student body of the Uni- 
versity and many alumni and friends 
who knew the prominent New Eng- 
land surgeon during his career at 
Shaw. 

Introduced by Dr. John O. Plum- 
mer as a "bulwark to Shaw Univer- 
sity and a blessing to society," Dr. 
Mackerrow lauded the professors of 
the old Leonard Medical School and 
Shaw University for their great con- 
tribution to his success and urged the 
present students to "study well while 
you are here that your life may be 
such as to earn respect for the tradi- 
tions of this great school." 

Coming to Shaw from Montreal, 
Canada, in 1900, Dr. Mackerrow had 
planned to be a missionary doctor. 
After he completed in 19 04 his work 
at Shaw, however, he did further 
work at McGill University. Later he 
was appointed as the "first Negro 
resident of the Women's Hospital in 



Montreal. Finally he settled in Wor- 
cester, Mass., whence his reputation 
as a tuberculosis authority spread 
throughout the world. 

A member of the Royal Institute 
of public health, the American Medi- 
cal Association and other outstand- 
ing medical organizations, the New 
England doctor has visited in the in- 
terest of several of these organiza- 
tions several countries in Europe, 
parts of Asia, and Africa. 

Upon the completion of the address 
in Greenleaf Memorial Auditorium 
students declared themselves inspired 
by "the life of this man who in a 
very modest fashion has carried the 
Shaw banner far." 

Dr. Mackerrow was accompanied 
on the visit to Shaw by Mrs. Macker- 
row. 

Music for the exercises was fur- 
nished by the Shaw University Choral 
Society under the direction of Pro- 
fessor Harry Gil-Smythe. Dean Fos- 
ter P. Payne was master of cere- 
monies. 



On Founder's Day all Shawites are expected to return to Shaw or to tune-in 
at eleven o'clock in the morning for the President's annual address, to be 
broadcast through the facilities of Radio Station WPTF.

The Football Team 



As this issue of The Bulletin goes 
to press the 19 3 8 Shaw University 
football team has for the first time 
in recent years earned five consecu- 
tive victories in as many games 
played during the 19 3 8 season, and 
is the only team in the Colored Inter- 
collegiate Athletic Association unde- 
feated and untied during the season. 

Sparked by the sensational back- 
field of Creecy, Govan, Fleming and 
Chavis, ably supported by a powerful 
line which has improved with the 
season, the Shaw Bears have defeated 
on successive Saturdays the St. Paul 
Normal and Industrial Institute, 
Howard University, Fayetteville State 
Teachers College, Johnson C. Smith 
University, and North Carolina Col- 
lege for Negroes. They have scored 
fifty-five points while their opponents 
were scoring nineteen. 

Much credit for the showing of the 
team is due Coaches James E. Lytle 
and Leonard Ligon, who have molded 
a senior backfield and an inexperi- 
enced freshman and sophomore line 
into a unit which is causing consider- 
able consternation in C. I. A. A. foot- 
ball circles. 



Four games, including Virginia 
State College, Virginia Union Uni- 
versity, St. Augustine's College, and 
Bluefield Institute, remain on the 
schedule, which Shaw alumni are 
asked to support.
